Denmark and Copenhagen are booming with Public Art and the latest addition is a brand new mural by RETNA which was just completed last night.
Painting in the district of Aldersrogade, the Los-Angeles based artist created yet another beautiful artwork showing some of his signature typography-based imagery.
Retna has become known for his long and geometric script, which he developed while looking towards Egyptian and Native American traditional symbols. Though his marks resemble the calligraphy of multiple cultures (and he maintains that he composes his works in English and Spanish), the writing does not belong to a particular language. Retna explains, “I want my text to feel universal. I want people from different cultures to all find some similarity in it—whether they can read it or not.”
Take a look at more images after the break and then check back with us soon for the all the newest murals from Europe.
